There are many indie retailers throughout Oakland with wonderfully unique gifts that are open for business on what has been coined “Plaid Friday”. Show your love of “local”, by supporting the Old Oakland business district on Friday, November 27. You’ll find some pretty amazing gifts, many of which are made right here in Oakland by talented artisans & artists. Ratto’s will be open from 10-2, and in addition to serving wonderful sandwiches and steaming bowls of soup, we have a festive selection of gourmet gifts from the U.S. and beyond. Come in and peruse our shelves and sample some panettone, cheese and olive oil. Wishing everyone a Thanksgiving weekend filled with love and gratitude!
Today we are serving Tunisian Split Pea soup with vegetables scented with cardamom, ginger and warm spices.
